Corporate Videos & Video Production Manchester, London & Nationwide

Standby Productions

We love what we do



We’re all about collaboration. Add to that our love of cinematography and passion for storytelling. Together we can create films that have a real, powerful, stop-you-in-your-tracks impact; drawing an emotional response from your audience like no other medium can.

This is why we love making films. Whether we’re working on a creative treatment, filming on location or getting stuck into a big edit, we’re fuelled by a desire to do better. A truly great film should move people, and we want every production of ours to do exactly that.

This is what separates us from our peers. We know our best work is still ahead of us, and that desire to go beyond, to create something even more powerful and creative than before, drives us onwards. By the end of a project, you will be the proud owner of a video that achieves your business objectives and we should be proud creators of something exceptional.

Film, watch, enjoy, repeat: that’s what we do here at Standby.

So let’s do it together.

We make people smile

We make people laugh

We make people cry

We make people proud

We make people happy

We make people connect

We make people enjoy

We make cracking films

Introducing our lovely crew...

  • Managing Director

    Simon Owen

    Standby is based on a hobby that's turned into a business. If you enjoy what you do, you never work a day in your life... I'll take that. All thanks to this amazing crew.

  • Film Director

    Ashley Yarwood

    A coffee loving, film-mad charmer who shoots, edits and occasionally sleeps in his spare time.

  • Creative Director

    Jack Warman

    I don't drink coffee, but I do shoot pretty things and make cool edits.

  • Business Development

    Rich Allen

    I exercise before work, drink my coffee black and have a big cactus.

  • Producer

    Ellen Bounds

    I basically run the place, organising everyone and keeping this talented bunch on track. I also love a good Gin & Tonic.

  • Filmmaker

    Chris Kenward

    A travel loving caffeine addict. Filmmaker out of office, Jack's (forced) best friend in office.

  • Finance Director

    Peter Owen

    Like Benjamin Button, the older I get the younger I feel. A Man City man.

  • Filmmaker

    Mark Prince

    I like to make films, love a good freebie, drink too much coffee and play the drums.


We work with clients of all sizes. It doesn’t matter to us. What really matters is telling your story the way it needs to be told.
